Young pilot opportunities

Well I undertook to put something back into aviation and made the Aztec available to young com pilots to build hours while flying with me.

My first young pilot has just left the nest, he found himself a full time flying job.

My next young pilot will start with me shortly, and hopefully I can make a contribution to her career as well

Great stuff, very honorable to give back like that! How do they get the endorsement in their logbook for the Aztec?

I arrange a conversion for them (at my cost), there after they fly as PIC. I have plenty hours, don't need anymore and I am lazy, much easier to let young hands fly.

Aztec, I commend you for what you are doing. I for one realise as you get older its more about sharing your experiences with the younger crowd :goodpost: :champion:

Aztec, I'm going to send a very humble young man from our Flight Operations department your way if you don't mind?
